Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his comments and his question.
He is right. It is unbelievable that some members on the other side boasted about how the rail crisis was managed. They found a way to brag about it.
People will say that they were patient. They were not patient. They let the issue drag on. That is not the same thing. It took them 20 days to wake up. During the first 10 days, the Prime Minister was on vacation and did not want to be bothered. During the following 10 days they did not really know what to do, so they passed it off to the provinces. In the last 10 days, they realized that the Bloc Québécois's proposals actually made sense and decided to try those solutions 20 days too late.
